. they tried to force the issue using the debt ceiling in 2011, using the fiscal cliff in january. i am as gung-ho as any of them to force obama into cutting spending. but it failed, and the reason is, you cannot govern from one house of the congress. that is the truth. i wrote a column this morning saying essentially, you have to recognize, you cannot use these things come up as in the end, you will have to cave. you will be humiliated and our ratings will be low, as you indicated, and you will not get the spending cuts anyway. certainly, i do not think the republican house will want to go over the cliff. >> the president of the united states has gone from dealing with the big problem that faces the whole country to try to destroy the republican party. this is exactly what the public does not want. we are turning into small, petty brinksmanship. let's see if we can crush the republican party. he has given up on the larger and more noble goal of doing something. >> i am not going to say who was right or wrong in the negotiations but the reason that this grand bargain has twice fallen through is

. >> senator cruz, house republicans have taken a step back on this debt ceiling standoff. should it be raised. this is how "the new york times" described it over the weekend. i'll put it up on the screen and have you react to it. backing down from the hardline stance, house republicans said friday they would agree to lift the limit for three months with the requirement that both chambers of congress pass a budget in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction, to add muscle to the efforts to bring democrats to the table, they would include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on th
to do about the debt ceiling, they're going to use the phrase kick the can down the road, is beginning to sound more and more like kicking the latrine down the road, by the way, when they use the reference to the can, but they stepped back from their hard line position. and i think what they have to do, joe knows a lot more about this than i do, they have to reform within and not seem like a party that is getting smaller and narrower and the opening to that party is getting much, of narrower. they have to open it up to a lot more people. >> joe, they obviously saw the polling on taking on the debt ceiling. taking on the debt ceiling, but i am sure that you would challenge david and president obama with what will force his hand to cut spending beyond what he's done, which you saw in the polling, americans do want as much as they want compromise. >> they do want that to happen. i do want to follow up, though, on something david said earlier, what americans want more. and actually ranesh, of the "national review" would hold that view. and actually some would agree, and that is that vision
a debt ceiling soon. a list of if you're aggressive, 25 things. does he have to pair that list down be to one? i mean if you're only giving him a year window before essentially let's say two, before it's a lame duck, you know, is it one thing to go for or 20 things or five things? >> circumstances will pare it or expand it. who would have predicted six weeks ago we would talk about gun control as a major item on that list. presidents react to events much more than they control events and that's true first term, second term. ronald reagan is a classic xarm. is the reagan second term a failure because of iran-contra or a success because of the treaty. immigration reform, tax reform. whatever you hear about the second term curse be skeptical. >> is there an annual gis time in history to where president obama is now, some place we're told that lots of time the speech writers and presidents look at past inaugural addresses for inspiration? where in history can this president find that inspiration? >> you know, it's tough to find a time when we've been so polarized. thomas jefferson, peop
with republicans on the hill after the debt ceiling negotiation back in 2011. for that reason and others, his confirmation hearing could be bumpy. if confirmed, he will be dealing with the top issue in this second term, how to get the economy moving and addressing the country's long term fiscal problems. >> this is a president that is forced to grapple with the budget woes, with the economy that cannot get over the hump. it will consume most of his time, i believe, in the second term. >> what he cannot do going into the term is go from economic crisis to economic crisis. that is not leadership. he has to figure out how to address this in ay way. our health care reform cannot waste, must not wait and will not wait another year. >> passing health care legislation early on was high on the president's to-do list. he picked kansas governor to head up health and human services, to get health care legislation done he largely passed control over to congress to put the bill together and to figure out how to get it through. it became a messy process about 2,000-plus-page bill. it did pass. it was signe
